Other specifications

  • All ads should be delivered as PDF, exported using our presets (see the table above)
  • All ads must have correct dimensions and bleed
  • Spreads must be sent as a single file (preferably as two separate pages).
  • Images should have a resolution of (at least) 300 ppi
  • Do not use TrueType-fonts
  • The PDF should be generated using the correct color profile to ensure predictable/correct colors (see the above table). We do not take responsibility for minor variations in the reproduction
  • When layouting spreads (except for Gjør Det Selv), be aware that up to 5 mm can disappear in the spine/fold (especially on the first/last spread). We recommend shifting any images that cross the spine 2,5 mm to each side (causing 5 mm of the image to repeat at the spine)
  • Ad dimensions for the different titles can be found here

Uploading the ad

Do not send us ads via e-mail.

Upload the final PDF(s) to:
You should also receive a link per e-mail where all the information regarding your booking as been filled out. We recommend using that link if possible.

How to install the color profile(s)

  1. Windows:
    Right-click he .icc-file and choose “Install Profile”.
  2. OS X:
    Copy the .icc-file to the following folder:
    /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Color/Profiles/Recommended/
    Alternatively you can copy it here:
    /Users/[ditt brukernavn]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Color/Profiles/Recommended/
  3. Restart your layout software if you had it open.

How to install the PDF-presets

Warning: Color Profiles must be downloaded and installed before you install PDF-presets!

  • InDesign:
    File > Adobe PDF presets > Define… > Load
  • Illustrator:
    Edit > Adobe PDF presets… > Import

If you use another software or version that does not support our presets, use the following manual settings (click for screenshots):

How to install the color settings (optional)

Warning: Color Profiles must be downloaded and installed before you install Color Settings! 

  • InDesign/Illustrator:
    Edit > Color Settings > Load…

If you already have started a new document, we recommend going to Edit > Convert to Profile… and choose the correct CMYK-profile for your document (see table at the top of the page). Then you will see the colors more accurately while working (this is especially important for Vi i Villa).
